Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu arrives in Delhi

15 January 2018

14 for his first visit to India to expand defense, trade and energy ties during his six-day stay. "This visit will strengthen the close ties between our countries", Modi tweeted in Hebrew.

Immediately after arrival, both the PMs left for attending the renaming ceremony of Teen Murti Haifa marg in commemoration of Indian army's contribution in Haifa's freedom in 1918, much before the establishment of Israel as a country. It is making fun of the Prime Minister of India that too with the other global leaders of the countries with whom we have good relations.

Netanyahu told journalists earlier this week that he would prefer India voted differently, "but I don't think it materially changes the tremendous flowering of relations between India and Israel". This is in part because New Delhi sees Israel as an ally against Islamist and nationalist militancy.

On the strong bond between the two leaders which was driving the current Indo-Israeli ties, Carmon said the relationship between India and Israel is an "all-weather friendship". "This is a great blessing for the State of Israel", he added.

The tri-colour fluttering on one side and the Israeli flag on the other as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu touches down in Delhi, the second Israeli Prime Minister to do so after Ariel Sharon came calling in 2003. While regional issues will be on the agenda, Netanyahu's visit is expected to focus more on strengthening burgeoning economic and technological cooperation. Benjamin Netanyahu is all set to meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj at the Taj Diplomatic Enclave shortly.

The Union Health Ministry will also sign an agreement with Israel's Saare Tzedek hospital on homoeopathy and Ayurveda.

Sources said that this relates to sharing of knowledge in the field of homoeopathy and Ayurveda that have been gaining popularity in Israel over the last few years. It must also calculate the indirect impact of unilateral moves in the Israel-Palestine conflict on its own dispute with Pakistan over divided Kashmir.

Netanyahu's entourage includes the largest-ever delegation of Israeli business people of some 130.

"It is important for the State of Israel that one of the world's major powers wants to develop close relations in many areas - economics, trade, security and agriculture".

Also, India last month voted in favor of a United Nations resolution denouncing President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Netanyahu will also meet President Ram Nath Kovind.
